About the Elemental Weight Loss Providers
Elemental Weight Loss Clinic’s mission is to enable our patients and their families to live healthier and happier lives by providing a full range of highly effective, evidence based, affordable weight loss solutions. In so doing, we seek to eliminate obesity in the communities that we serve.
Our programs are designed to help you achieve sustainable long term weight loss. We do this by focusing on the cornerstones of good health; sleep, nutrition, exercise and mental wellbeing. Our goal is to help patients improve and in some cases, eliminate other weight related medical conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes. We believe that your body and your relationship with food is unique, therefore we start with identifying particular root causes for your weight gain. We will then develop a treatment plan that is specific to you.
